Admission Requirements
An Honours Degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, Software Engineering or equivalent qualification
subject to the approval of the head of department and the Board of the Faculty.

To be admitted to the M (Nurs) degree programme a student shall have passed the B. Nurs degree with an average final mark of at least 60%.

Departmental Research Projects
Students are expected to participate in the ongoing research projects of the Department. We are currently
conducting research in the intersection of the domains of:

  • Software-Defined Wireless Ad-hoc Networks
  • Cloudlets for Mobile Cloud Computing.

The GUISET reference architecture has been previously developed in the Department. It relies on mobile web/cloud service technologies and standards to enable context-aware deployment of services while protecting personalisation
and privacy concerns of mobile user groups. We envisaged a GUISET broker that explores all service e-market places as potential sources of pay-per-click online services. Recently, we have been looking at ensuring that the GUISET engine takes advantage of the Mobile Cloud Computing environment, which envisages a combination of architectures. At one extreme end are Data Centre based solutions, at the other end are ad hoc mobile cloud; in between will be the Cloudlet concept. We are looking to use the SDN/NFV technologies as the basis for exploring
Small Data applications as well as secure and energy-efficient use cases of GUISET.

In consultation with the head of Department the degree may be awarded by dissertation ONLY
